It took some extra weeks, but now Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, one of the best selling phones by the Chinese brand, is finally updating to MIUI 9.2. The update is a nightly Stable build, so it is not the final version. But expect a Global Stable version soon. Indeed, users who tried this ROM have already reported that it is suitable for daily use: this means that it has no significant issues. With this update, the number of version jumps to 18.104.22.168.MHOMIEK and the size is 290 MB.
Even though we are talking about MIUI 9.2, the firmware of Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is still based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow instead of Nougat like the on the most recent Xiaomi phones which have been updated to MIUI 9. Among the most important things regarding the new update, there is the security patch for the month of January 2018. In case you don’t know, Google releases a security patch every month, and the one from January is the latest one released. The February patch will be released in a few days. In the update, there is also a fix for the KRACK WiFi vulnerability.
A new Gallery app has been added to Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, and also the Mi Video app for multimedia uses. There is a new File Manager, Mi Drop and many more improvements.
